Soul Urge Number 4

The need for stability and structure

You have an inherent need for stability and structure. You are willing to work hard. Thanks to this and your methodical and stable approach, you are a rock for any business.

Promotion comes easy to you, and you thrive in hierarchical environments. (For instance, the corporate world.) The need for stability manifests itself in your relationships with others, too.

Your loved ones can always rely on you. You’re always on time and you have no problem taking on more responsibilities. Your house is usually in order, and you approach chores as methodically as your work. In fact, chores and daily routines (such as exercising) help you to attain a sense of stability in your day. You could say they anchor you.

As number 4, you may feel a little unhinged without these daily routines.

Working towards a goal

You have a strong desire to always be working towards a goal.

This is a great quality which can help you achieve many things. (Especially compared to the more wild and creative types.)

Your goals tend to be down-to-earth which makes them even more achievable. You may not have a vision that sets others aflame, but you do notice every detail.

You are happy to blend into your surroundings without drawing much attention to yourself. You’re not huge into socialising and prefer to leave the spotlight to others. But if anyone tries to step into your territory, your need for control and order will be under threat. It is is important that you also take the time to relax. Your partner, family or loved one will especially appreciate this.


This soul urge number expresses many wonderful practical characteristics.

But it also means that you may have a tendency towards perfectionism. This is because you have such a strong desire to create order and stability in life. Sometimes you are so engrossed in this that you forget the bigger picture.

You may get too carried away with establishing order in trivial things. For example, you may invest huge amounts of energy in things like cleaning the house in a particular way. Or rigidly following the rules of a new recipe. This is because you detest sudden change.

For you, rules represent freedom.

By following rules and doing things in a certain way, you create the stability that your soul craves.

Your desire for rules can also manifest in less helpful aspects of life.

For example, you may become rigid or too conservative in your views, which can inhibit others. While others value your reliability, living with someone with heart’s desire number 4 can be challenging at times.

Not everyone associates rules and order with freedom. You need to recognise that others have a different approach to life. Allow them to express all aspects themselves, even if they seem chaotic to you.

Expressing emotions

You love and care deeply, and you are moved by injustice.

For people with soul urge number 4 to feel fulfilled, it is important to be involved with a charitable organisation.

However, you may struggle with expressing your deep feelings. Soul urge 4 expresses practicality and materialism, and feelings are not tangible. They may baffle you at times.

For many of you, love is expressed through practical actions. But what you need to realise is that this may not be the same for others. Often people need to be told that they are loved. Your loved one may not actually be aware of how much you care for them. And with children especially you need to find ways to express the deep love you feel toward them in your heart.

Finally, there’s more to numerology than personality profiles. You can also use it to forecast the energies in the weeks, months and years ahead. By working out your personal year number, you can also plan your future. Click here for a free numerology future forecast, customised to your name and date of birth.
